At the London Meetup last night, the idea of having a CiviCRM co-working day was discussed, so we are certainly planning to do that in London on CiviDay 2014 (Wednesday, January 29th), and wouldn't it be great if the same pattern could be followed around the world. The idea would be that the CiviDay Meetup in the evening would be at the same venue as the Co-Working day, ie that we book a venue for the whole day and into the evening, and that the venue has good wi-fi available and access to refreshments.
Last January, we have 24 amazing CiviDay meet ups in cities around the world. I looked back just now and was reminded of all the great things that came out of those meetups (including CiviCamp DC!). It was great to see existing meet ups energised and new ones started. This coming January 29th 2014, we want to repeat the success of last year, and push it up a notch.
Ixiam will present CiviCRM in next OpenExpo CRM conference that will be offered at the Innovation Center Vaguada (Av. Monforte de Lemos, 38 – 28029 Madrid )
The 30-minute talk will be given by Alejandro Salgado, Director of Ixiam, highlighting the advantages of CiviCRM for Third Sector Organizations (TSOs).
More information can be found on the website of OpenExpo or iXiam's Blog.
As if you guys weren't sick of us already... here's post number 3.
CiviCON London reunion / Oct London Meetup
Wow, didn't that summer pass quick! No sooner did all the Brits have on our shorts then now it's raincoats and scarves.
After a brief summer hiatus while we all readjusted our wardrobes, the London meetups are back!
We learned that there was a need to develop a CiviCRM local community in Mexico, based on enlarging the demand (Civil Society Organizations that valued the system could pay for and use CiviCRM), the offer (IT providers and web-designers that could offer their knowledge, skills and services to these organizations at reasonable prices) and the links to the international CiviCRM community (understanding the steps towards expanding the outreach of the software and make its installation and usage more friendly in IT-scare contexts).
This month's CiviCRM London Meetup will be on Wednesday 31st July, at Red Gallery (corner of Rivington Street and Shoreditch).
